New photometric observations, using the uvby and Hß systems of 72 northern-hemisphere active binaries are discussed in order to explain the main characteristics of their spectral light intensity distribution. Values of the parameter δm_1 range from 0.0 to 0.3 mag, which cannot be explained in terms of metal underabundance alone. The existence of some mechanism, responsible for such a colour-index anomaly, is thus suggested and is found to be in close relation with the involved degree of solar-type activity.
